D70 enables experienced-to-amateur photographers to easily adopt digital technology into their existing camera system. The camera has 3D Digital Matrix Image Control, Digital Vari-Programs, and a lens servo system. Nikon engineers chose the MPC17511 H-bridge motor driver IC from Freescale Semiconductor to power the motor. The monolithic driver integrates control circuitry for driving integrated and external n-channel MOSFETs. Designed for PWM control frequencies up to 200 kHz, the analog IC offers increased battery life for the portable application.

Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
